Anonymous Threatens Sony’s support of SOPA

Posted: December 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

It seems  Anonymous is making a move on the SOPA Bill that is threatning the freedom of the internet. I have no clue if these threats are serious or if the source material is credible in any way but the confusion is the beauty of it. All I have to say is keep on playing skyrim for the next month or two because you may want to stay out of the online components of the PSN. To be honest if this is real I’m a little excited as  we’re running into 2012, there’s so much to look forward to and so many things checkpoints on the calendar.  If all the coming events are the apocalypse the Mayans were talking about then it’s going to be a blast! Anyways, onto the message from Anonymous.

“Hello, SONY.

We are Anonymous.

It has come to the attention of the Anonymous activist community that you have chosen to stand by the Stop Online Piracy Act. This act will halt online businesses and restrict access to many sites for many users. Supporting SOPA is like trying to throw an entire company from off a bridge. Your support to the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates. Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not. Sony, you have been warned.

To those doubting our powers. We’ve infiltrated the servers of Bank of America, The United States Department of Defense, The United Nations, and Lockheed Martin. In one day.

For their approval to SOPA, we have also declared that our fury be brought upon the following persons. Justin Bieber. Lady Gaga. Kim Kardashian. and Taylor Swift.

Operation Blackout, engaged.
Operation Mayhem, engaged.
Operation LulzXmas, engaged.

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.

Supporters of SOPA, you should’ve expected us.”

There’s quite a bit of witty comedy inserted into this message so you can tell the people who made it were pretty young and had fun doing it. I’ll be honest it’s my first time witnessing their logo and a message from them that isn’t from transcript. If this is the first time they’ve released an audio threat then it shows that they are getting recognition. What I’m wondering is why the choice of making a video that is public on youtube and not something a little bit more direct? I’m pretty sure that after the previous attack Sony is willing to take measures against any threat. The fact that the message originates from a youtube video is the only thing I find a little sketchy. Nonetheless, the confusion of the credibility does add to why they call themselves what they are.

Another thing I just looked at that doesn’t lead me to believe the threat as 100% valid, is because their twitter account is pretty active but very recent. Anonymous has been around for a while so I can’t be sure anything can go down yet, but I will admit it is HIGHLY PROBABLE hacker groups will get in the way if SOPA passes. It’s almost going to be as horrible as the war on drugs except this time around it’s going to involve everyone.
